Apifonda is consisted of 2/3 microcrystal refined sugar and 1/3 dissolved sugar. This mixture apart from the sugars, it also contains Invertase enzyme in small quantities and which it also exists in organism of the bees.
This enzyme causes the sugar breakdown regardless of the temperature and as a result the pasta of Apifonda remains soft and can be taken easily by the bees.
